On High Petergate, by the Hole in the Wall pub, a narrow alleyway leads to Precentor's Court, a quiet cul-de-sac which gives a fine view of the Minster.

Dean's Park, by the Minster, is on the left as you reach the end of Precentor's Court. It's a beautiful place to sit, at any time of the year. As well as offering green open space, trees, and a view of the Minster, it contains the Minster Library, and a war memorial, pictured here.
